With crushing electronics & feedback ridden guitar providing counterpoint to their gentler moments, the Minnesotan trio are more vital than ever - finally winning over even the most LOW-phobic of the Residents.

The balance between brutal & gentle, abrasive & absorbing is what LOW have built their career on but here, they’ve pushed it to the extreme. They’ve invoked Forest Swords’ harshest moments & more than a few hints of former Kranky labelmates Stars Of The Lid’s spartan compositions which, when combined with their half tempo songwriting, submerges you into their frozen world. It’s profoundly different from their previous work but after hinting at this direction on ‘Ones & Sixes’ (also produced by B.J.Burton) they’ve used electronics & space to make an oppressive yet delicate work of genius.“burying melodies, obscuring lyrics, mutating instruments under electronic treatments…it sounds as though the group are literally trying to convey the sound of the sky falling” – The Wire
